:leaning. as you're listening to the campaign rhetoric, do you think one side -- does obama seem more likely than romney to solve any of the problems. >> the coverage of the election has nothing to do with what's really going on here at all. first of all, the romney-ryan plan would eliminate took capital. ryan would eliminate all tax on capital. romney would for everybody who has more than 12.5 million of wealth. up to that point you wouldn't be taxed. that's ha system that says we're going to let the already rich live tax free and put all the tax on con expulsion on labor, specially on labor. we're going further the policy of shifting things down, and i believe it would lead to dynastic wealth and leave the situation where the entrepreneurial spirit is stalled and killed but it's the newcomer, the guy who grew up without any money and makes a success of himself who makes the economy grow. not the person who grew up with a silver spoon in their mouth. and we would become like 18th 18th century france, and your economics were determined by who you picked as your parents -- and i mean that to sound
, do you think one side -- this obama seems more likely to solve the problems? >> guest: the coverage has nothing to do with what is going on here at all. the romney ryan plan with the eliminate the taxes on capital and from the wood for anybody with cough $.5 million of wealth and up to that he would have no taxes on capital the people of that would be taxed. that is a system that says we're going to let the already rich with tax-free and put the consumption of large labor and for the policy i believe it would lead to wealth and the situation where the entrepreneurial spirit is stalled and killed because it's the guy that group like me with no money and makes the success of himself with a silver spoon in the not so you'd like 18th-century france and 18th-century france your economics were determined by who you picked as your parents and i mean that to sound just as of serve as it was coming your birth quarter and if you were not, too bad for you. obama is suddenly the most business friendly person in history and i realize people listening to this are going what 100% expenses when a c
rhetoric do you think one side, does obama seem more likely than romney to solve the problems. >> guest: the coverage has nothing to do with what is going on at all. first of all the plan eliminates all taxes on lap capital and everybody that has 12 and a half million dollars of wealth. and people -- that this is the system that says let's deal for the rich live tax and we are going to further the policy shifting things down and i believe there would lead to wealth and the situation where the entrepreneurial spirit is killed because it's the newcomer but grew up like i did that makes the success of himself and makes the economy grow and we would become like 18th-century france and your economics were determined by who you picked up as your parents, your gender and birth order. obama is actually the most business friendly president in the american history and i realize people were listening to this saying what? 100%. not under obama. 30% bonus for a single year. in the current economic environment it may be to encourage more capital investment. i think we need to discuss whether we want
, too bad for you. obama is the most business friendly president in american history and every less people listening to this are going what? let me tell you what obama has done. 100% expensing. normally when a company buys new equipment, build a factory, they have to write it off over three to 38 years. under obama you write 100% today. the best george bush did was 30% for a single year. and the current economic environment it may be good policy to encourage my capital investment. we need to fundamentally discuss the corporate income tax and how we want to make her. secondly, obama gave tax cuts to small businesses under the guise of stimulus that republicans wanted. they are inherently anti-stimulus, savings. but he voted for all these things. the best indication is during the long crisis 20 years ago, 3000 felony convictions, 8000 of them insiders went to prison. how many prosecutions have we seen in the crisis that led to the meltdown in 2008? that's right. the statute of limitations is rapidly running out and that's absolutely incredible. by the waycomehither sizes are going to
i think about it is we can remember barack obama's speech in 2004, this -- the democratic national convention, a dazzling rhetorical masterpiece making him a national figure, and four years later, was without that speech, he's not a candidate for the presidency. lincoln gives a dazzling speech in new york, the cooper union speech. it is a beautiful testament to the quality of lincoln's minute, the research he does, the logical argument. it's a great speech. well worthy of praise, but when he ran for the senate, when barack obama gave a speech in 2004, he was running for the senate in illinois and won. lincoln ran for the senate in illinois, and he lost. did you want to think about lincoln in 1860, think about barack obama running for the presidency in 2008, if he had lost the illinois senate election, not if he had won it. that's the level of national obscurity we are talking about here. the election itself, the republican national committee, votes to put the republican convention in chicago in 1860. lincoln's from illinois, huge hometown advantage for lincoln, but the reason the c
canals, building dams, helping to nation build in afghanistan. the same terrain that president obama's troops surge unfolded in over the last couple years. in my history of obama as surge, astart back in the 1940s in this remarkable period of american assistance to afghanistan, a period of great optimism when we built this town there that the afghans called "little america" complete with a co-ed high school, a swimming pool with they would swim together, a club house to get a gin and tonic. i use that as the opening for the book that talks about the great hope and traj ji -- tragedy in afghanistan today. >> does little america still exist? >> it does. it's the capital of helmand province, looks nothing like it did then, the suburban homes, the white walls now built over. there's no more swimming pool, and it's not quite as safe of a place as it was six decades unfortunately. >> for americans, six decades is a long time, but for the afghan community, it's not a long time, is it? >> they still remember this peer. i remember going out and traveling through the helmand province in 2009,
. however, when someone on the far left does something, when president barack obama says vaccines might cause autism, that was ignored. and, yes, he did say that. we'll talk about that later in the talk. so also there have already been 1e6r8 books published on the topic. chris mooney's one of them, there's a couple over ones. -- other ones. to our knowledge, this is the first book on the anti anti-scientific left. so progressives are anti-science as well -- >> let's give the devil his due, bob -- [inaudible] wrote a book. >> ah, okay. >> within months of yours. at the same time. >> oh, okay. and progressives are anti-science as well, it's just it's not reported by the media. the media simply looks the other way when their political allies do things that are anti-science. so what do we mean by progressives? well, we took david nolan's chart here, and we kind of relabeled it to fit more of our political ideology today. conservatives and libertarians are the ease to identify, the conservatives are the mainstream republican party, libertarians, the ron paul revolution, bring us back the con
's the same accusations about obama and libya. when you find avenue attack. you run with it. >> guest: there's a strong political attack coming from right and lead up to the midterm election and it endures after that. and this is what part of what kennedy is facing with trying to control the message. it's not just about making him look god. any president is going to want to have good press. anyone wants good press. part of it is trying to good press. in controlling the message an trying no lot let the critics define him. if we think it through a little bit what would have happened if the republican turn it in to kennedy failure. instead of remembering it as a kennedy victory and a great moment in america's cold war battle? but instead we talk about how this was almost like a bay of pigs. it's another weak end moment he was negligent or, you know, any of those aspects? if you think about that, the implications for kennedy at the time were enormous. he was having hard enough time getting the legislation through congress then anyway. if he was further weak end by the massive, you know, the perc
